Gamingbolt: 2010 is almost coming to an end and what a year it has been for Sony’s PlayStation 3. In our first part of our “Year in Review 2010”, we take a look at how the PlayStation 3 performed throughout the year. Let’s get started.
ps3 had a lot of solid releases
it was for me. GT5 wrapped it pretty well for me. i've realise that GT5 is feeling more like a RPG for me. i look at the cars i have won/bought that has been upgraded fully. i sure wont be letting my friends drive these babies when they come over. if they crash (which they will), i'll have to pay thru my nose. lvl 20 here. i feel like like i own that 'Demon's Souls' character.. if he kept dying the world became darker.. q: oh Demon's Souls.. how i loathed you.. but i kept coming back to you.
2009 was better
I agree with Imtey, 2009 was better. 2010 was good, but 09 was better. But 2011 is set up to blow both of them out the water!
I actually thought that MS had the upper edge in exclusives compared to Sony this year. They had Fable III, Splinter Cell, ME2[thats not available for PS3 yet], Crackdown, Ninety Nine Nights 2, Alan Wake, Metro 2033, and a few more. But next year is looking to PS3's amount of exclusive games shining a bit more because of the amount.
GoW 3, GT 5 and PS move takes the cake. Then there' HR and lots more too. Best year imo
No, but it was better than the Xbox 360, I can tell you that. Next year PS3 will rule, though: LittleBigPlanet 2 Killzone 3 Infamous 2 Uncharted 3 Resistance 3 Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
Add Motorstorm: Apocalypse, SOCOM 4 and The Last Guardian to that list.
Disgaea 4 White Knigh Cr 2
Don't forget Twisted Metal.
and DON'T forget Journey! why have i only got 3 bubbles and most people start with 5? my other account was taken over by my brother and he brought me down to 1 bubble because he's a pillock
Those are the 6 that I am most looking forward to, also! I love the Ratchet, Uncharted, and Resistance series especially.
Yakuza 4 too!
Nah 2009 was better, just my opinion, and 2011 will beat 2010 for sure.
PS3 MAG White Knight Chronicles Yakuza 3 Heavy Rain MLB 10 God of War 3 Gran Turismo 5 Move 360 Alan Wake SC: Conviction Crackdown 2 Fable 3 Halo Reach Kinect Overall it was a good year for both PS3 and 360. However 2009 IMO is still the best year for PS3 with Killzone 2, MLB 09, inFamous, Demon's Souls, R&C: A Crack in Time, Wipeout Fury and Uncharted 2. 2011 will no doubt surpass both 2009 and 2010.
Very well said! I agree that 2009 is still the best year for PS3 for various reasons. In my opinion this year was pretty close game wise but it all comes down to personal preference.
No, 2009 was better. 2011 is the new 2009.
2011 > 2009 CoD will be insignificant in 2011
i hadn't thought about it but damn, with mass effect, gears of war, Uncharted, killzone, and a multitude of other great games (ELDER SCROLLS VI!) COD IN BIG TROUBLE next year...I love it
Problem is, Majority of the games will be released before summer. Only Uncharted 3 will be out in Autumn. Which means COD's only worry is Uncharted, and yeah, they need to worry. I need to find money, fast.
@IREpbtown Gears 3 is in fall of next year, mass effect is holiday next year, uncharted, and elder scrolls are all slated for fall if I am not mistaken. thats a heavy line up. but yeah Need to find band aids for my wallet...it is going to take a beating!!!
2011's definately gonna be better.
next year is GOD!!
I personally prefered 2009...but 2010 wasn't too bad =) GOWIII HR and GT5 are pretty epic... now...2011, thats easily PS3's best year ever. there are as many exclusives announced as there are AAA multiplats (thus far, obv this will change)
Umm did you see 2011 release date?
Though not as good as 2009, PS3 still had more quality titles than the 360 this year, which is ironic considering how MS was running their mouths about how 2010 is the 360`s biggest year. Next year is looking to be the PS3`s best for sure.
it pretty much has been microsofts biggest year. only a fanboy says something that stupid. Xbox 360's are nearly SOLD OUT and if they are not you can buy the 4gb NON KINECT and thats it. 5-6 years after you release something lets see if it still sells out. Should we go into some kinect bashing now? maybe we wont talk about how it will fail on a consumer level...just about how it sucks no matter what cuz I like another company derka derka derka /s http://www.bestbuy.com/site... http://www.gamestop.com/bro... http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-... (so amazon has the kinect bundle I was a bit wrong on that one sold out of others though unless 3rd party seller) hurts to see the competition successful? Both sony and M$ are having great years...next year looks like the best year yet for gaming and your over here acting like a 3 year old. lol fool.
It was, until yesterday ;) Now it will be 2011
In my opinion,the 360 had a great year.I hate Kinect and see it as a mistake but Halo Reach,Fable 3,and Mass Effect 2 really helped me to enjoy the 360 in 2010.Th PC also had some great games like Civilization 5 and Starcraft 2. 2011 will be even better.We already know about Crysis 2,Killzone 2,Elder Scrolls 5 and Uncharted 3 so there are many surprises left in store
2010 was....ok in my opinion. It had a couple of highlights, but I definitely think 2009 was better.
I'm sure I'll be alone in thinking this on the N4G mainsite, but I'll say it anyway. 2010 sucked for PS3. God of War 3, Heavy Rain, Modnation Racers *pause for prolonged drought* Gran Turismo 5. Four games, and they nearly didn't even have a single exclusive title for their fall lineup this year because of delays. LBP2 being delayed was a massive disappointment, and I'm sure SOCOM 4 being delayed was also disappointing for people, though I personally couldn't give a dusty crap about that series. They blew their load early with GoW3 and HR. The rest of the year was shot until GT5. Not even close to their "greatest year". 2008 and 2009 were easy sweeps for the PS3 over the 360 in terms of exclusives, but 2010? Nah. It's very debatable who had the better year, and I personally had more fun on the 360 than the PS3 this year, largely due to Mass Effect 2 and Alan Wake.
I don't know if I agree with all of your points...but I see where you are coming from...to be honest this year was small amount of releases with BIG quality all over them! I bought a ps3 basically for Heavy Rain and God of war series, but yeah not a whole bunch going on this year just good quality exclusives.
Yeah, Start of the year was brilliant. Come Fall, and GT5 only. But the games that were released were and still are very solid, great games. I won't say which was better this YR, 360 or PS3, but despite the lack of exclusives for ps3 fall, the exclusives that were released were brilliant.
3D Dot Game Heroes White Knight Chronicles MLB Yakuza 3 Atelier Rorona Trinity Universe
In my opnion i would say 2010 was a solid year for ps3! But 2011 is going to be better due to alot of great exclusives.... but at the end of the day we all get Amazing games on our ps3!!!!
nope, because it faILed to out sell the 360 in the U.S.
What does sales have to do with anything? Is that money going in your pocket? The 360 had a head start...just like the Ps2 did. Since 07 Sony has released better games than the 360...just because something sales more doesn't mean its better. Sony makes more money because they sell their system for profit. Microsoft is still digging it's self out of that Xbox 1 hole and Xbox 360 just started breaking even.
http://www.next-gen.biz/new... what parallel universe are you from? At this point both m$ and sony are making profits of the CONSOLE and have been for a while. Their gaming divisions are not exactly doing positive numbers. nice try though...neat bias you have there.
Im not even going to comment on that dumb articled you linked me to. Not worth a response.
PS3 line-up vs the 360 line-up is much like this video
They say this is the year of the PS3...outside of 2006 and part of 2007 the PlayStation Brand has released the better games. I love my Halo and Gears to death...but that's about it...anything else I can play on my PS3. 2010 was a great year but I wouldn't say it was better than 09...2011 is going to be epic.
and i think 2011 will be the best year for the PS3, and i know thats said every year that the next will be better but seriously 2011 looks CRAZY for the PS3 :)
2010? Best year of the PS3? No way 2009 had a lot of great games, including the Overall GOTY, plus the redesigned slim...
Being a dual console owner, I have to say it was the worst Ps3 year. I only bought 2 games all year. God of War 3 and Heavy Rain. Next year looks to pick up some. The 360 had a stellar lineup this year with solid titles with gems like Fable 3, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell, Metro 2033 and of course Halo Reach. Add all the AAA multi-platform games that were better on the 360 like Bayonetta, Red Dead, Black OPS, etc... and you can see that the 360 is still in top form.
PS3 had *the better games in terms of progress, quality and content.
Every year is the greatest. Even when there isn't a game to buy.
...everybody knows 2011 will knock it out of the park. I feel like 2010 was a very solid year, but it did drag a bit on the exclusive side of things the second half. Still, it was not bad by any stretch.
